First Home Buyer Tips for the Millennial Generation

The Millennial Generation grew up during the housing crash, so rightfully they are more cautious of becoming homeowners because of the foreclosure problems they've read about or their parents may have experienced.
Now, facing high student loan debt and a tough job market, Millennials are less likely than other generations to experience home ownership. What’s a Millennial to do?
Here are a few First Home Buyer Tips to help the Millennial Generation  pursue the American Dream of home ownership someday:
1.  Get Pre-Qualified
2.  Set Goals. Map out your financial future
3.  Review your credit and finances
4.  Use Technology to your advantage
5.  Think Low-End

Owning your own home has been the American Dream for decades. It’s a dream that has been sorely tested by the real estate crisis and economic developments in recent years. I have the belief that anyone that deserves to own a home should be able to do so. The Dream is still attainable for those Millenials who do their homework, establish a game plan and work hard to achieve that goal.
